Euro-Centric, Part 1How does an entire continent redefine itself? What is a European? How do present-day Europeans deal with the memory of two world wars? How does the inheritance of a colonial past impact the current generation? How do contemporary artists deal with the weight of their own cultural history? How do these artists define themselves through their desire to participate in a dialogue of NOW? Is there a contemporary European aesthetic? “Euro-Centric, Part 1” is the first of a series of exhibitions over the coming years that will attempt to address these questions.

This major exhibition will be presented in 16 of the 27 galleries that constitute the RFC exhibition space.
